Do Japanese men circumcised?

1. Introduction

Circumcision is a surgical procedure in which the foreskin of the penis is removed. It is one of the oldest and most common surgical procedures in the world, with an estimated one-third of all men being circumcised. While circumcision is often associated with religious beliefs and cultural practices, it has also been used for medical reasons. In recent years, there has been a lot of debate about circumcision, particularly in countries where it is not traditionally practiced. So, do Japanese men circumcised?

2. History of Circumcision in Japan

Circumcision has been practiced in Japan since ancient times, although its prevalence has declined significantly over the past century. Until recently, circumcision was mostly limited to certain religious and social groups such as the Ainu people and some Buddhist sects. However, it was never widely accepted or practiced among the majority of Japanese people.

3. Prevalence of Circumcision in Japan

Today, circumcision is still relatively uncommon in Japan, with only around 2% of adult males undergoing the procedure each year. This number has remained relatively stable over the past few decades and is much lower than other industrialized countries such as the United States (where over half of all males are circumcised).

4. Reasons for Circumcision in Japan

The primary reason for circumcision in Japan is medical rather than religious or cultural. The most common medical reason for circumcision among Japanese men is phimosis (a condition where the foreskin becomes too tight). Other reasons include balanitis (inflammation of the glans penis) and recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs).

5. Religious Significance of Circumcision in Japan

While some religious groups practice circumcision as part of their faith, this is not true for most Japanese people. In fact, there are no major religions that require male members to be circumcised as part of their faith or rituals.

6. Medical Benefits of Circumcision in Japan

Medical studies have shown that there are several benefits to being circumcised that may outweigh any potential risks associated with the procedure itself: reduced risk of urinary tract infections; reduced risk of penile cancer; reduced risk of sexually transmitted infections; improved hygiene; and improved sexual performance due to increased sensitivity on exposed areas on the penis after surgery. However, it should be noted that these benefits may not necessarily apply to all individuals who undergo circumcision for medical reasons such as phimosis or balanitis treatment.

7. Cultural Significance of Circumcision in Japan

In recent years, some parents have chosen to circumcise their sons for cultural reasons such as wanting them to fit into society better or look more “manly” by having a larger penis size due to lack of foreskin covering it up.There have even been reports that some parents opt for their sons to be circumcised so they can join exclusive clubs or schools where boys must be circumcised to gain entry.
